*** Deadline extended - September 01, 2013 ***


10th IEEE International Conference on Autonomic and Trusted Computing 
Sorrento Peninsula, Italy - December 18-21, 2013
hosted by Second University of Naples - SUN

Computing systems including hardware, software, communication, and networks
are growing towards an ever-increasing scale and heterogeneity, becoming
overly complex. Such complexity is getting even more critical with the
ubiquitous permeation of embedded devices and other pervasive systems. To cope 
with the growing and ubiquitous complexity, Autonomic Computing (AC) focuses 
on self-manageable computing and communication systems that exhibit 
self-awareness, self-configuration, self-optimization, self-healing, 
self-protection and other self-x operations to the maximum extent possible 
without human intervention or guidance. Organic Computing (OC) additionally 
addresses adaptivity, robustness, and controlled emergence as well as 
nature-inspired concepts for self-organization.

Any autonomic or organic system must be trustworthy to avoid the risk of 
losing control and retain confidence that the system will not fail. Trust 
and/or distrust relationships in the Internet and in pervasive infrastructures 
are key factors to enable dynamic interaction and cooperation of various 
users, systems, and services. Trusted/Trustworthy Computing (TC) aims at 
making computing and communication systems as well as services available, 
predictable, traceable, controllable, assessable, sustainable, dependable, 
persistent, security/privacy protectable, etc.

A series of grand challenges exists to achieve practical autonomic or organic 
systems with truly trustworthy services. Started in 2005, the series of ATC 
conferences has been held at Nagasaki, Vienna, Three Gorges (China), Hong 
Kong, Oslo, Brisbane, Xian, Banff, and Fukuoka. ATC 2013 will include a highly 
selective program of technical papers, accompanied by workshops, panel 
discussions and keynote speeches. Established as a premier venue in the area 
of autonomic and trusted computing, ATC 2013 will offer a forum for 
researchers to exchange ideas and experiences in the most innovative research 
and development in these challenging areas and includes all technical aspects 
related to autonomic/organic computing (AC/OC) and trusted computing (TC). 

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
1-  AC/OC Theory and Models
    Models, negotiation, cooperation, competition, self-organization,
    emergence, verification, etc.
2-  AC/OC Architectures and Systems
    Autonomic elements & their relationship, frameworks, middleware, 
    observer/controller architectures, institutional architectures, etc.
3-  AC/OC Components and Modules
    Multi-core CPU, memory, storage, database, device, server, proxy, 
    software, OS, I/O, etc.
4-  AC/OC Communication and Services
    Networks, self-organized net, web service, P2P, grid, EaaS, 
    IaaS, SaaS, PaaS, cloud computing, etc.
5-  AC/OC Tools and Interfaces
    Tools/interfaces for AC/OC system development, test, monitoring,
    assessment, supervision, etc.
6-  Trust Models and Specifications
    Models and semantics of trust, distrust, mistrust, over-trust, cheat, 
    risk, reputation, reliability, etc.
7-  Trust-related Security and Privacy
    Trust-related secure architecture, framework, policy, intrusion
    detection/awareness, protocols, trust-adaptive agents and communities, 
    data protection, users privacy, access privacy, etc.
8-  Trusted Reliable and Dependable Systems
    Fault-tolerant systems, hardware redundancy, robustness, survivable
    systems, failure recovery, etc.
9-  Trustworthy Services and Applications
    Trustworthy Internet/web/P2P/grid/cloud services, secure mobile services,
    secure wireless services, novel applications, etc.
10- Trust Standards and Non-Technical Issues
    Trust standards and issues related to personality, ethics, sociology,
    culture, psychology, economy, legal aspects, social networking etc.

The ATC 2013 Organizing Committee invites proposals for workshops affiliated 
with the conference and addressing research areas related to the conference. 
Accepted workshop papers will be included in the proceedings published by 
IEEE CPS Press. For submission details/deadlines:

All papers must be submitted electronically and in PDF format. The material 
presented should be original and not published or under submission elsewhere. 
Authors should submit full papers of up to 8 pages, following strictly the 
IEEE Computer Society Proceedings Manuscript style
(http://www.computer.org/portal/web/cscps/formatting), using two-column, 
single-space format, with 10-point font size. Figures and references must be 
included in the 8 pages. Oversized papers will be automatically rejected by 
the PC chairs. At least one of the authors of each accepted paper must 
register early to attend the conference, in order for the paper to appear in 
the conference proceedings. 
Submissions are to be made to the submission web site at 

Accepted main conference papers will be published by IEEE CPS 
(IEEE-DL indexed). At least one author of each accepted paper is required to 
register and present their work at the conference; otherwise the paper will 
not be included in the proceedings.

Paper Submission due: September 01, 2013 (23:59 American Samoa time) [extended]
